You told me boy look the other way
You told me boy bite your tongue
Yes that's not the way,
Yeah that's not the way
Ah that's not the way that friends behave
Ah that's just not the way that friends behave
Oh no, no, no,
No, no, no, no

You lined me up
Across the room
Two falling sparks
One willing fool
And I, I always knew
That I would love you from afar

You told me boy look the other way
You told me boy hide those hands
But I've been living on the crumbs of your love
And I'm starving now

And that is the way that we remain
Ah that will be the way that we remain
Oh no no no
No no no no

You lined me up
Across the room
Two falling sparks
One willing fool
And I, I always knew
That I would love you from afar

You lined me up
Across the room
Two falling sparks
One willing fool
And I, I always knew
That I would love you from afar

It shouldn't come as a surprise
What I'm feeling, what I'm feeling now
It shouldn't come as a surprise
She got darling hazel eyes

It shouldn't come as a surprise
What I'm feeling, what I'm feeling now (x4)
